Hi spring. I don't think speaking multi-language is a very important thing in modern. I think you know the language that you need is far enough. But it is always advantages. Somebody will get interest in learning other language, some are not. Also many think that learning language that is not their mother tongue is very difficult. I enjoy learning other language although I can't speak or listen well. I can speak Cantonese(Mother language), Mandarin, English, Japanese and a little of Korean and Italiano. But I am now just concentratin on learning English and Japanese. Because I am living in Australia, and I really love Japanese. I studied Italiano but not Spanish is because I personally like Italy. I learn Korean because I have lots of Korean friends when I was living in Canada.

Ya languages have more importance in our life to communicate. I understand three languages. They are Hindi, Punjabi and English. Punjabi is my mother tongue, Hindi is our national language of our country and foreign language is English. I write English easily, understand easily but my speaking is weak.

Dutch which happens to be my mother tongue, English, German and French. In order of command level. :) I'm glad I can (fairly) easy express myself in the first 3 languages. French is a language of which I already forgot quite a lot. I learned them all in school and I am utmost glad that I've got and grabbed the opportunity to learn languages.
